Next, It's Vodka with Madame

Among the City’s best LGBT Networking parties are the monthly Next Works soirees hosted by Next Magazine. There was one tonight held on Thursday, January 16 at the first class health club, Club H Fitness. The party featured big gift bags and an open bar sponsored by Christiania Vodka, a new spirit imported from Norway and one of the smoothest Vodkas I ever had! I also loved the gorgeous Norwegian bartenders! The party was also celebrating the arrival of Next Magazine’s new Health & Fitness issue. Fitness and Networking are among the most important activities in NYC, right next to eating, drinking and breathing. I wasn’t the only flashy Lady at the party. Madame, the bawdy, yet sophisticatedly hilarious Grand Dame of puppets was mingling about the event, telling everyone about her return to NYC with a new Cabaret show. She was with her new partner Joe Kovacs, who's been keeping the old girl going strong since the passing of Wayland Flowers. I also mingled and networked with Don Robinder, Lou Marino and others from Next Magazine, Milan Kowalewski from Laser Cosmetica, Bob Beleson from Christiania Vodka, Blake Mays, Adam Kilpatrick and others from Club H Fitness, Will Clark, Bradley Staher, my girlfriends Rita and Madeline and many others.
